Facilitator Masterclass Training 8
"We get wise by asking questions, and even if these are not answered, we get wise, for a well-packed question carries its answer on its back as a snail carries its shell.” — James Stephens
Staging Questions and Running An Exercise
Description: Did you know that master facilitators determine the quality of questions and interactions they get from an audience? In this masterclass, you’ll learn how to formulate the “staging questions” that generate positive, transformative comments and interactions from your audience.
The key to getting value from any endeavor resides in your willingness to integrate what you are learning and implement it in your life. All new thought and new ideas are useless unless we act upon them. The same is true in this course.
If your goal is to be the kind of person that catalyzes change for others it will require you to step just outside of what’s known and what’s comfortable to act as you breathe and accept the challenges that lie before you.
“You can’t cross a sea by merely staring into the water.” — Rabindranath Tagore
As you begin to create your content for a group facilitated experience, you’ll need to begin with determining which clear story you plan on presenting and then adding engaging and transformational elements to that clear story. Complete the exercises below to create your content for a group facilitation. If you are using RECODE content to become a RECODE FACILITATOR then much of this work is done for you and it’s a matter of learning and practicing it. You’ll find that information in the RECODE WORKBOOK.

1) Based on your answer to the reflection questions above, write out 10 staging questions that “lead the witness” (guide your participants) to the exact discoveries about themselves you most want them to have. Don’t forget to use some basic and advanced softeners.
Reflections exercises are one or more questions that we’d like you to be in deep consideration of for the entire week. These are meant to be shared with your family, friends, and community so that they can offer you a more complete 360 view of yourself, your identity, and your reality.
Everyone has blind spots. These are areas where we are less developed that are outside our view. Getting reflections will point out things that you might not ever know yourself.
In addition, the more you consider these reflection questions the more likely you’ll be able to break through your current level of thinking and use the exercises to leap frog into a new level of consciousness.
Here is this weeks self reflection question.
1) Pick a section from the RECODE material that you are teaching, OR pick a section from your own teachings. What questions are you most hoping your participants will have? Imagine they are talking to their best friend after your course / workshop / talk. What do you want them to say was the big “take away” they learned?
2) Notice if your answer to #1 is primarily focused on A) you, B) the material or C) themselves. Its natural for your attention to go toward A and B, but that usually indicates some insecurity about yourself or the material. What would you have to believe in order to have 100% of your focus be on what the participants say about themselves after your course / workshop / talk?
